Summer is not yet over. We still have to endure the heat for quite some time, so it’s no wonder that people are turning up their air conditioning to stay cool and comfortable. Unfortunately, this may lead to higher than usual cooling costs for your home this season.
Tittle Brothers Construction can help you with some tips to make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable.
Invest in a Cool Roof
Your roof is constantly exposed to the sun, and this leads to your attic heating up. A hot attic means it’s harder for your air conditioning to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout your home. Consider investing in a cool roof. This will help save you money, and make your home more comfortable.
Tittle Brothers Construction can help turn your roof cool. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, we are qualified to install Timberline® Cool Series Shingles. These shingles use specially designed roofing granules to reflect the sun’s heat away from your home. According to the Cool Roof Rating Council, cool roofs can save you up to 15% in total cooling costs.
Replace Your Old Windows
Old and worn down windows will make your home less comfortable. If your home needs constant window repair in Detroit, MI, replace your windows with more durable and energy-efficient options. Tittle Brothers Construction can install industry leading replacement windows from manufacturers like Pella Windows, Polaris Windows, Renewal by Andersen®, and Simonton Windows.
Our window options feature insulated frames and special weatherstripping materials. Our replacement windows reduce heat transfer making your home cooler and more comfortable. These can also ensure more savings.
Improve Your Home’s Insulation
According to the National Society of Heating and Ventilation Engineers, poorly insulated walls and ceilings can lead to up to 44% energy loss in a house. If your home is more than a decade old, then it is likely that your attic insulation is inadequate.
At Tittle Brothers Construction, we’re not just experts in windows in Detroit; we’re experts at insulation, as well. We can install highly efficient attic insulation that will reduce energy loss and cut your monthly energy bills. As a James Hardie® certified contractor, and a Mastic Elite Contractor, we can install insulated fiber-cement or vinyl siding for your home. This will create a thermally efficient barrier that will lock in your home’s cool air and keep you comfortable this summer.
